I am not printing voters’ ID cards – Asiedu Nketiah
The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has dispelled allegations that he is fraudulently printing thousands of new voters’ ID cards.
The wild allegation was made on Ultimate FM Fact File against the General Secretary of NDC by a leading member of the pro-opposition group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA), Ibrahim Adjei, challenging the former to file a suit if he thinks his image is tarnished.
Adjei claimed that Mr. Nketiah is printing the cards in a bid to rig the upcoming November general elections.
Speaking on Ultimate breakfast show hosted by Lantam Papanko, he asserted that the group has lost its credibility, and is only good at creating confusion in the country.
‘This whole group of LMVCA has lost its own credibility, so normally I will not be responding to anything they say. I mean they have been proven to be a bunch of people who don’t believe in truth. They just want to create confusion based on lies and misinformation and so on and so forth,’ he said.
He indicated that he would rather use his energies on profitable things than to waste his time to contest the issue in court.
‘I wouldn’t be wasting my time on allegations made by them, and more so I don’t believe that Ghanaians believe those type of things. So tell them am not going to take them to any court, am not going to do anything about it, they are just rambling around, I have better use of my time,’ he stated.
Asked if he is worried that the rumour is going to dent the party’s image, he said, “If a credible person is saying it, I will be worried but not these type of people.”
The General Secretary of NDC assured that the NDC has no plans of rigging the elections.
“By our utterances and our posture you should know by now that NDC believes in credible elections, and we believe that everybody must have the right to vote,” he stated.
